May, 2010

About the piece

One Hundred and Twenty-Eight Haiku is based on two developments from 2009: the generative composition/performance One Hundred and Twenty-Seven Haiku and the hardware and software performance tool Gaggle. These two items are joined by two other newly developed experimental devices: Touchtree and Gagglina, and these items are amalgamated into a performance which is in turn improvised, composed and automatically generated. Richard HOADLEY has as a composer in recent years focused on the investigation of the use of technology in the compositional process: the nature of indeterminacy in music and its aesthetic and philosophical ramifications, and the effect of the interface in different forms on the creative process. rhoadley.net
